Providing grants to small community projects that make a BIG difference!

Who Are Lintel Trust?

We are an unendowed SCIO and have operated in Scotland for almost 40 years. Since 1979, we have given out over £1 million in grants to thousands of housing related projects to help people suffering disadvantage in social housing.

We are the only charity in Scotland with a focus on the provision of small grants to help social housing and community based projects.

Our History

Lintel Trust (previously Scottish Housing Associations Charitable Trust) has been an unendowed charitable trust, working with voluntary organisations and Scottish communities, since 1979.

In 2015, we joined the Link group of registered social landlords, social enterprises and voluntary organisations.

The inclusion of Lintel into the Link group provides a strong base allowing Lintel to continue and augment its work across Scotland. The partnership represents a unique opportunity to contribute in a significant way to the development of social enterprise within the social housing sector throughout Scotland and to empower those most in need.

Our funds are generated through fundraising activities and events; donations, individuals and commercial companies, sponsorship from business partners and, more recently, the provision of a fund management service with a focus on reporting on social impact.
